IBM introduces new version of Notes

The move will allow users to build workflows around email

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM has introduced a rebranded version of Notes, which lets users create ’embedded experiences’ inside their email clients. INstead of the usual Lotus Notes, the latest products are called IBM Notes and Domino 9.0 Social Edition.

The move to the IBM brand umbrella is intended to emphasise its social-media-like features and the ability to create ;embedded experiences; in a new email client.

Users can create embedded experiences in IBM Notes and Domino 9.0 Social Edition by using OpenSocial APIs to pump applications’ screens calling for user interaction into email or calendar items.

The move will allow users to build workflows which depend on email as their carrier without the requirement of the application to be deeply integrated with the email/collaboration services server.

IBM Australia messaging and collaboration executive Chris Haylock told The Register that could even mean the likes of SAP make an appearance inside email.

The Register reported that the other feature includes an attachment-abstraction arrangement that means attachments aren’t stored in the email client Haylock said IBM itself has been able to shed six petabytes of attachments with the feature.

The feature will store a single copy of a file centrally, perform version control and enable multi-user collaboration on a single document in real time without spawning new locally-resident versions that fill desktop hard disks.
